SVN is still the official repository, a Git mirror is available for people to start exploring git or submitting contributions using pull requests

Details

  • Use the context menu to start the clone:

  • If this is the first time you run Git, it will ask you to complete the profile setup:

  • The only things you need to complete are the User name and email address
  • These values will be embedded in any commits you make
  • Commits are hashed and can't be changed later, so it is imperative that you set appropriate long-term values
  • A long-term personal email address is usually recommended
  • You can change these values later, but changing them will not change any commits that you have already contributed to a repository

  • The files will be in C:\DEV\resiprocate after the clone:

  • Click "Clone" to proceed:

  • Wait a couple of minutes, it is downloading the full history of every file in every branch:

  • It is not finished and ready to use:

  • Use the context menu to access Git functions:

  • Notice how the browser can easily show all activity on a file on all branches in chronological order?
  • Browsing the file in other branches is lightning fast because everything is cached locally by the "Clone" operation

Next steps

  • Now follow the steps in [[1][the Visual Studio Readme from the repository]]
  • In particular, you now need to download OpenSSL and install it under the contrib directory before you try to build
